Improve history navigation on Mac OS

Use case or problem

I use Obsidian on a Macbook and since it has such great workspace layout support, I typically run it full screen. When doing this, the forward and backward navigation arrows typically in the top bar disappear, as the top bar isn’t present for full-screen applications. two-finger swipe navigation on the trackpad is also not supported.

Proposed solution

Add support for two-finger swipe gestures for history navigation - ideally across Mac, Windows, and mobile touch devices.

Current workaround (optional)

There are hotkeys for navigation (defaulted to ⌘+← / ⌘+→), but this doesn’t work on mobile & tablet devices without a keyboard

Two-finger swipe back and forward is an option on mobile currently.

You also might want to check out the Pane Relief plugin for different history navigation options, although I don’t think it’ll resolve your primary issue here.
